What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College is what you make it. It's not about what school you get into or what you end up majoring in; it's what you learn about LIFE that's important. Parents: Don't make decisions for your children. Let them choose their schools. And once your children are away at college, let them be the ones to call you. Don't pester them. If they call you with complaints and problems, don't coddle them or solve the problems yourself. Encourage your child to be an adult and solve the problems on his or her own, and help them along the way. Students: There is no right college, and there is no right major. Visit all the schools that appeal to you, and go wherever feels "right" (after you get accepted, of course). Explore. Take classes that sound interesting, talk to people, and get involved. If there's something you want to do that your campus doesn't offer, do it anyway. Find other students who share your interests and start a club together. If you're unhappy with something, change it. College is what you make it, so make it what you want it to be.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person who should attend this school is someone who is open-minded and hungry for knowledge. The ideal NAU student might not be eager to learn in the classroom, but he or she should be enthusiastic about taking advantage of the diverse liberal culture and learning about how other people live. This person should also have no fear in the classroom; he or she must know the best class discussions begin when someone has something outrageous or out of the ordinary to say. The ideal NAU student speaks his or her mind without fear.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about NAU is that the people here?students and staff alike?embrace diversity. People of a different race, ethnicity, social class, gender/sexual identity, and/or sexual orientation are welcomed with smiles and open arms. This is better than anything else I could say about my school because it affects everything else in a positive way. Diversity brings variety and excitement to class discussions, and it also exposes the campus to different points of view. The great range of diversity also brings a lot of student activism to the campus. The best thing about NAU is diversity.

The size of the school is what interested me. The classes are small and we get to have great discussions with the professors.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell them to look at the cost of the schools. Are they willing to compromise their finacial security for a college that might not give them the end result they wanted? It will be hard but I do not recommen exceding their capacity for a college that might not be the right one. With that in mind, I would suggest to get involved and meet new people. That is the way to make memories and have a blast while maturing and preparing for the future.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There have been two times when I called the financial aid office and they had told me something that my parents did not have to pay their college loan until I was done with school. Well, it turns out that was not true and we have to start paying it off after the last disbursement next semester. That was very upsetting and now I have to take out another loan to pay off my parents' loan since we were not expecting those payments.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Take your time in selecting your college. Do not decide where to go based on where your friends are going, because that may not be what is best for you. Listen to your parents advice, but in the end, listen to your heart also. Research, research, research! This is a huge decision, and one that will affect you for years to come. Once you are at your college, find people that you have something in common with and be yourself. Don't spread yourself too thin and don't party too much! It will ruin your chances at success. Good luck!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who doesn't want a huge University and to get lost in the crowd. Anyone who wants to still be able to talk to their Professor.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

It is a beautiful school with brick buildings, tall pillars, and trees everywhere. We have mountains nearby for skiing in the winter, and four fantastic seasons The campus is not too big and not too small. The classes are actually taught by the professors, not by associates.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would suggest that students and parents get involved with the college experience. I think that they should take advantage of the new student orientations and mixers and learn what the college has to offer - before committing. I also think the dorms are great for first year students, are reasonably priced, and are a great way to get to know other students. I also think students need to work closely with financial aid and academic advisors before enrolling in classes - especially when they haven't chosen a program. Get all your general education requirements out of the way first.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone interested in attending college in a small town, high altitude atmosphere. The college has comprehensive programs and makes learning fun.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I can't think of a type of person who would feel uncomfortable here - even though a majority of students are younger, there are a lot of returning students, too. The online program works well for many working adults.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best advice I can offer is that the student makes the decision about where to go. They should pick somewhere they would feel comforatble adn become apart of the ollege community.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any kind of person should attend this school. Those who should not are people who dislike cold weather and nature. Otherwise NAU is a great place to learn.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst part about my school from my personal experience is the art program. I am an art major and there is little emphasis on the art program. There is strong support for the arts in this community, especially in the jewlery and ceramics area, as well as music. However teh painting, drawing adn printmaking programs get somewhat left behind as far as courses offered.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

With only 14,000 students, NAU is the perfect small-town university offering high academic standards, a wide assortment of extracurricular activities and numerous volunteer and leadership oppurtunities.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Before embarking on your college career you need to have at least a four-year plan. College is expensive and most likely you will need to take out loans or spend countless hours applying for scholarships that never come to fruition. You do not want to spend you entire life in college, after all college is supposed to prepare you for life. Also you will want to get the most bang for your buck. So have a plan. Pick a major and stick with it. If you are unsure of what you want to do with the rest of your life you may want to take a semester or two to work and save money while you are pondering this question. But take no more than two semesters and then get back in the game! Once you have a plan, carry it out and take advantage of the many oppurtunities that will come your way! You are young so have fun but don't become too distracted by the pleasures of life. Work hard and when all seems lost keep on keeping on. When all is said and done you will have spent your time and money well!

What kind of person should attend this school?

If you love the great outdoors, camping on the weekends, breath-taking mountain views from your dorm room, socializing and serving in a small community, more trees and grass than parking lots then this is the school for you!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you visit campus, go through the tours and orientations if it's offered. It's great touring during the academic school year because that way you can observe the students and the surrounding environment and get an idea of the campus atomsphere. Parents, encourage your kids to not come home as often, cut the cord loose! There are so many activities going on during the weekend that if they are visiting home, they miss out on some great and fun opportunities and don't get as connected. Students, LIVE ON CAMPUS PERIOD. Especially your first year. The time to meet new people is your freshman year. Everyone is in the same boat as you. And lastly, ENJOY! Live it up! Some of the best times of your life! =)

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who doesn't appreciate the outdoors.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Personally I only enjoy the snow recreationally, ie snowboarding/skiing. It is not fun walking to class in a blizzard...
